Raleigh, North Carolina                            January, 2003

 

Welcome to the DogGoneFast Winter WufFest II!

 

Thank you for your entries; we are expecting 53 teams and we will have 2 rings.  Please check the other links on our web site for seed chart, racing schedule, detailed directions/maps and a complete list of food sales.

 

Once again we have managed to provide each team with 39 or 40 heats.  We have a very full racing schedule, so please do your best to keep things moving along. We have split the racing so that there is slightly more on Saturday.  We are short of box judges, so please plan to box judge the race following yours.  We have trophies for 1st place and ribbons for  2nd and 3rd placements, a raffle and a bake table, and a prize table sponsored in part by PetSmart.

 

We would like to thank Blockade Runners and Triad Dog Sports for lending us matting.  Without their generosity, a 2 ring tournament would not have been possible.

 

Racing Format

All racing is Round Robin, either 5/5 or 3/3.  Teams are awarded 1 tournament point for each heat won, and an additional point for winning the race.  Ties will be broken by the best time posted in the division.  Warm-ups will be 2 minutes on both days.  Warm-up time may be reduced to 90 seconds if necessary. Please notify the judge if you do not need the entire warm-up period. Ring A has priority.  Please inform the judge prior to your race if a conflict is expected.  The two rings will be separated by a barricade.  Please use the assigned doors for entering and exiting your ring and do not cross behind the barricade.

 

Multi 1 and Multi 2 are competing in a combined round robin as per the new NAFA rules.  All races count towards tournament points for division placements.  Multi 2 will still be subject to the breakout rules while racing the Multi 1 teams.

Venue Information

The Holshouser building will be open until at least 8pm on Friday night; you may drop off your flyball boxes if you wish.  There is no room for team crating in the racing building, exceptions have been given for judges and for folks that have special needs.
